. >> thousands. mission control at jpl, you have probably other people. they built the spacecraft there. everything was assembled there. and now you've got teams of scientists that are running the different instrument packages. so it's big team for a $2.5 billion mission i >> put something in perspective. we'll do a live remote with somebody. they could be in downtown washington. we could talk with them and there will be a significant delay from when i ask the question and you get the answer from the person. you go from place to place, you can't get coverage, you can't hear something would might be three miles away. >> is this a rap session. >> no, no, no, here is my question. how are we able to control this device 352 million miles away. how is it it can send a picture back within moments of landing on mars? >> because it is all set in the computer program. what they did for this was mars odyssey which is a spacecraft that is in orbit was using the radio uplink between the spacecraft which is now the rover and they were sending data back because the thing that is amazing, when she was
